In what comes as a piece of sad news for many devotees and animal lovers, elephant Sudha Rani, who took part in Moharram and Bonalu processions in the city during 2019, passed away on November 16, 2021, in Karnataka. Many local villagers paid respects to her before she was cremated.


Sudha belonged to the Mahalaxmi and Saraswati Temple of the Chippalkatti village in Karnataka’s Belgaum. The 40-year-old pachyderm was looked after by Najeer Alam Hathiwala till the time she passed away.


Sudha was apparently suffering from a foot ulcer on her right hind leg and was undergoing treatment for over a month. She was on medications and was recovering slowly, though she was in pain, says Alam, who is in grief.


Unfortunately, due to the soreness, Sudha had a tough time as she could not lie down or move around. Due to this, she was unable to heal faster as she kept standing and did not rest her leg. The doctor told its keepers to help her lie down to speed up the healing process and relieve her pain. However, she wasn’t able to stand again, as she became very weak.


Sudha was given saline and other medications to improve her strength, but she failed to recover and died at around 4 am on Monday. Alam, her caretaker, was with her since he left school after seventh class. He says the goddess will take care of him henceforth. He did not accompany Sudha to the crematorium as he could not bear the pain of her loss.
